seniors menu with a group of walkers
pre ordered food which was served promptly on our return
good food served hot to a group of 20
not unexpectedly some options run out
sorry to say bar service was chaotic, disorganised & slow probably because not enough staff due to the large party

Hubby and I often visit the Kings Arms. It's a lovely quaint pub with - I think - the only remaining Ostlers Box outside. It is very close to the river and has some pretty flowers outside. The food is always good quality and value. Six of us visited last night - Monday night is obviously not a busy night but we had booked. We got asked what drinks we would like which we brought out nice and quickly and then we ordered our food. Unfortunately there was no steak on offer as they had run out. It is curry night on a Monday offering three or four different sorts of curry with a side of rice, salad, bhajee, naan bread and mango chutney for just over £7 I think. There are other choices of food for those who do not like curry. We had a lovely evening and all of the food was very good and very well priced. We did have to leave some of the food due to the large portions but when I mentioned this to the waitress she did say that they do like to serve large portions so as to please everyone.

Strangely enough, this review is almost a duplicate of the previous reviewer's. Twelve of us had pre-booked a Friday lunch at the end of a walk from Otford. The pub was pretty busy when we arrived but our orders were taken promptly. I ordered cod, chips and peas. Then came the big problem. My meal took an hour (yes, a whole hour!) to arrive - and I was not the last person in my party to be served! The meal was huge and I enjoyed it. I didn't order a pudding as I didn't want to risk another long wait.

I visited the KIngs Arms with a group doing a walk from Otford to Shoreham. The pub itself has a real old world charm being set in the picturesque village of Shoreham. The pub was very full when we went in and we arrived with a party of 12 people but we had pre-booked, the result was that it was difficult to give orders and get served and this took quite a long time.

The food was excellent value offering a Senior two course Menu for £6.95. I chose Ham, Egg and Chips with Cheese Cake for suite my wife chose Fish Pie and Lemon Tart we both thought the food wholesome and delicious as did the rest of the group with their choices.

I spoke to other patrons of the Pub and they were frequent visitors taking advantage of the many good deals offered by the pub.

We will certainly go again but not with a large party!!
